The Parish Pastoral Council of St Therese parish has dismissed claims made by the secretary general of President Barrow Youths for National Development that two churches requested support from the organization.

Kebba Lang Fofana told The Fatu Network on March 8 that his organization received requests from Anglican Church of Banjul and the St Therese Church – requests he said they were processing.

But the chairman of the Parish Pastoral Council of St Therese Parish has told The Fatu Network they did not make any request from President Barrow Youth for National Development.

Gabriel Gomez said: “The Parish Pastoral Council of St Therese Parish wishes to inform the General Public that they did not make any request from President Barrow Youth for National Development as mentioned by its Secretary General Kebba Lang Fofana during an interview with Fatou Network on the 8th March 2019.”

The Parish Pastoral Council consists of representative from all the groups in the church and its role include co-responsibility communication, consultation, and coordination of its members.
